When Paul first told me he was going to go vegan overnight I felt a mixture of emotions. On a positive note, I had massive admiration for his forthright determination to live according to his principles despite what anyone says or thinks of him.… Read more
I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for over a year and I’ve not written a post dedicated to the staple essential and my absolute favourite: pasta. A week doesn’t go by that this delicious and versatile foodstuff doesn’t appear on my meal plan. So it’s about time I did a roundup of my favourite vegan pasta recipes.… Read more
Looking for the best vegan cake and biscuit recipes to make with your kids? Look no further. Baking with your children is one of the best ways to keep them entertained and being vegan doesn’t need to deprive you of that enjoyment.… Read more
It’s no secret that your average non-vegan Christmas day menu is traditionally packed with animal products. From the milk chocolate selection box in your stocking, to the turkey dinner, to the eggnog you enjoy (does anyone actually enjoy eggnog??), it’s not a particularly animal-friendly affair.… Read more
Hello! It’s Danish week. After a week off for the vegan episode I’m back with another instalment of veganising Bake Off, and I’m mixing it up a bit.
OK, so I think this whole Bake Off thing is actually sending me a little bit insane now. I’m a day late posting this because I seriously hurt my shoulder yesterday (rolling over in bed – probably need to strengthen my shoulder muscles).

…DESSERTS! My favourite!
This week is going to be a good’un because I know it involves meringue and if I had £1 for every time someone told me you can’t make meringue without eggs I’d have about £64.
Let’s get dessert-ing!
Did I mention it’s BREAD WEEK?
I’m so excited about this episode…firstly because I love a bit of bread and secondly because cake week was pretty labour intensive because of all the components of each bake I had to find. I’m hoping that, because bread is USUALLY vegan, this week’s bakes should be a bit easier to find recipes for.… Read more
It’s week 2! As I explained in my post on why everyone should watch Bake Off’s vegan episode , it’s a common misconception that cake has to have butter and eggs to make it work. This is not true! So I’ve scoured the internet to find recipes that get as close as possible to each of the remaining contestants’ cake creations, to help you make cruelty-free versions of whatever you fancy from this week’s episode.… Read more
